The odds for this prize level are not influenced by any 'Bonus Balls' and only the variables associated with the main ball pool are required to calculate the correct odds. The following formula is therefore used (Please note: calculations have been rounded): 

C(n,r) = Odds of correctly choosing r balls from n
n = Number of balls in the main pool
r = Balls drawn from the main pool
m = Balls to be matched from the main pool


Substitute:
n for 53 (number of balls in the main pool)
r for 6 (balls drawn from the main pool)
m for 6 (balls to be matched from the main pool)


Expand:
C(53,6) = 53! ÷ (6! × (536)!)
C(6,6) = 6! ÷ (6! × (66)!)
C(536,66) = 47! ÷ (0! × (470)!)
! means 'Factorial' eg: 53! = 53 × 52 × 51 ... × 1
Note: 0! = 1


Simplify:
53! ÷ (6! × (536)!) = 22,957,480
6! ÷ (6! × (66)!) = 1
47! ÷ (0! × (470)!) = 1

22,957,480 
= 
22,957,480 
1 

Calculate:
22,957,480 ÷ (1 × 1) = 22,957,480

Expand:
C(53,6) = 53! ÷ (6! × (536)!)
C(6,5) = 6! ÷ (5! × (65)!)
C(536,65) = 47! ÷ (1! × (471)!)
! means 'Factorial' eg: 53! = 53 × 52 × 51 ... × 1
Note: 0! = 1


Simplify:
53! ÷ (6! × (536)!) = 22,957,480
6! ÷ (5! × (65)!) = 6
47! ÷ (1! × (471)!) = 47


Calculate:
22,957,480 ÷ (6 × 47) = 81,410
